At our most recent Mudita Health Retreat, we had a lot of women come along who were concerned about their weight. They didn’t necessarily want to lose weight but they obviously didn’t want to gain any. They were power-walking every morning, didn’t miss a Yoga class and they didn’t actually eat very much. We had more leftovers than ever before! Good for us, not so good them…

The boys were rather confused by this. Especially Doko. He thought that most people (like him) would set aside such concerns when faced with the sheer beauty and deliciousness of Stephen Galpin’s food! He just couldn’t fathom that a fear of gaining weight could have more sway over someone’s mind than the joy of eating.

I’m not a lover of losing weight quickly because I associate any strict regimes with dieting and that isn’t so good for my psyche. But not everyone has the same issues as me. And of course, some folks need to lose more weight… and a kick start can help them to stay motivated.

When I say VERY LIGHT, I mean predominantly moong daal and vegetables with herbs, spices and oils and avoiding all meat, dairy and most grains apart from buckwheat (which technically isn’t a grain anyway) and all fruit apart from papaya. So what I’m really talking about is living on:

Again, to help your Agni along the way and eliminate excess Ama, make sure you have a ginger tea in the morning before breaky and sip boiled water or herbal teas throughout the day.
